Enterprise Holdings Summer Internship Program Funded for a Fourth Time
In Spring 2017, Dr. Ron Smith, FCB director of employer relations, received the check for a $5,000 grant to support a summer internship program by the Enterprise Holdings Foundation Board. This is the fourth time that Enterprise Holdings has offered this opportunity. The award was presented by Casey Miller, group talent acquisition manager; Ryan Todd, general manager; and Lisa Ampil, talent acquisition manager.
Due to limited financial resources, many students must decide between working a summer job and enrolling in a summer internship for credit to progress in their degree program. This assistance removes the financial barrier for first generation students, allowing participation in this meaningful extra-curricular experience with a qualified company.
The $5,000 grant is matched by the FCB, thus impacting a total of up to nine deserving students through this $10,000 fund. The money is available for students who enroll in the 408 Internship for Credit Course. Students can also be paid for the internship by the employer.
Enterprise Holdings is one of the FCB’s top recruiters hiring our graduates. Twice a year Enterprise employees have the opportunity to request grants on behalf of charitable organizations, business partners, community efforts, and other 501c(3) organizations. The Foundation reviews these requests and responds by allowing the employee to serve programs in our communities through donations.
Said Smith, “The FCB was extremely excited to receive the Enterprise Holdings grant. This grant is awarded to select colleges and universities where EH recruits potential candidates for the company. We were fortunate to receive the grant for a 4th year.”
The FCB knows that the students will gain from this experience in ways that will be far-reaching in their career development.
